Scandinavians and the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition

Next year marks the centennial of the grand Alaska Yukon Pacific Expostion (AYPE) held on the University of Washington campus in Seattle. As one of many events and projects planned for a wide-ranging commemoration, the Nordic Heritage Mueum will arrange a related exhibit, which is scheduled to run from June 12 - September 6, 2009. The exhibit will explore the Nordic people's involvement with the AYPE, which was attended by more than 3.7 million people in 1909.
